steve handlesman is live at the white house with the very latest this evening. and they're at the second ball, mrs. obama looking beautiful in a jason wu gown. >> reporter: stealing the attention again from the president. she is much beloved here in washington on both side of the political aisle. president obama's main theme on this second inaugural day was national unity since there's an awful lot that we can get done if americans get together. at the president's second swearing in by supreme court chief justice john roberts, hundreds of thousands jammed the national mall. president obama had his hand on bibles use d by president lincon and martin luther king. >> so help me god. >> congratulations, mr. president. >> we, the people -- >> reporter: in his inaugural address president obama echoed themes sounded by lincoln and king. >> while freedom is a gift from god, it must be secured by his people here on earth. >> reporter: the president urged action on the deficit and global warming and keeping kids safe. >> we reject the belief america must choose between caring for the generation th

correspondent and steve clemons is the editor-at-large for "the atlantic." richard, it's great to have you with us safe and sound. let me ask you about that. i had a sense as a political observer that the president was talking directly to the mullahs, to the people over there who really have the power, saying, look, maybe we can avoid a war, avoid a bombing campaign by us or israel if we can talk away from this weaponization of nuclear arms over there. how did you read it? what happened over there? >> i think he was talking to a lot of different audiences, and he was saying that i'm different than the previous administration. i'm not president bush. a lot of people around the world still remember the united states even though there's been four years of a barack obama presidency for the wars in iraq and the wars in afghanistan and military interventions and the drone policy, and he was trying to say we can work peacefully. we have to build on the peacemakers, and i think that is a message that will be received by people in iran, will be received by certain communities in iran, but there is

common ground. steve king tweeted this, awesome and shockingly liberal address. an epic realignment. so some people said not at all, other people said what i just read. what's your take? >> well, you know, the president won the election so he's certainly entitled to pursue his agenda. i thought it would have been more effective though if he had spoken more in thematic terms. by being as precise as he was is laying out a liberal agenda which is what's usually done in a state of the union. in going back to ronald regan's address, government is not the problem. those are general statements. i thought the way he got specific yesterday made it more of a, again, almost campaign type of address. he's an excellent speaker. even how he was distinguishing the issues, implying that democrats care more about disabled kids than republicans do. he's not going to turn his back on the sick elderly. no one wants to do any of those things. i thought he could have found some way to be more constructive. maybe he felt that the time for that is gone, but, you know, he's got a state of the union speech comin
